For my second topic I chose Copy Right and Wrong.
For the article I chose to do Copyright Risks in Embedding YouTube Clips which was a very interesting article about embedding video’s on youtube clips. It talk about sites likes youtube who have millions of videos on their site should be held reliable for the copyrighted videos that come up.
“Any time you incorporate a copyrighted work into a site without the rightsholders’ consent, you’re potentially liable” said Howell. Despite the fact that the user who uploads the video might not know that they are actually breaking the copyright rule might still be fined for it. The payment can go up to 30k dollars.
The Article even gives steps to help users avoid infringement and have a safe experience loading video’s on youtube.
1. Don’t Embed Clearly Infringing Material
2. Embed from Official Channels
3. Stick to Popular Amateur Clips
4. Say Something About It
5. When in Doubt, Link Don’t Embed
Overall I think that this article was very useful article to help our experience with online sites such as youtube.
